Cookie Munchies


The weekly cookie sessions really took off when Gertrude brought back a new seasoning from Mexico called "mar-e-juan-a".

Sunshine, Daisies, Butter Mellow....


"Hmmmmmm..... should I bake a pineapple upside down cake or lemon cupcakes? Or should I make a yellow squash casserole with corn on the cob.  Maybe I could make banana pudding or peach cobbler... Better yet I could put my focus on hosing down the rest of the kitchen in yellow... curtains, flooring, and switching out that dreaded red clock for a nice mustard hued one.  Perhaps then I will bake a nice simple yellow cake...with yellow icing....and yellow sprinkles. God, why wasn't I born a blonde?!"

so here's the deal... no posts on weekends. It's just not going to happen with the long hours I work.

"Good morning dear! Make sure to eat all of your grapefruit.  The arsenic...er, nutrients settle on the bottom. "

Dinner Deluxe


" Hello dear, would you pass a message along for me to Mrs. Paul?  Tell her I am ever grateful  for her making this Haddock Deluxe Dinner taste like ass! I passed it off on my mother-in-law as homemade and have cemented that she will never grace my house for dinner ever again! I will be forever in Mrs. Paul's debt! My real question is can I buy these in bulk?  I have several applications to use them... House guests that have outworn their welcome,  to encourage the Mr. to get out of my hair for an evening, and a whole luncheon for the PTA biddies would be grand. I'll take 3 dozen, Thank you!"

Birthday Planning Season


 Pumpkinbutt's birthday is at the beginning of March.  Every year he gets a bang up huge affair (fireworks may be involved this year). Therefore I will not have the time for much posting for the next month and a half. If you happen to look back at my posting history you will likely see that Jan and Feb are always lite, and that is the reason why.  Last year I made a personal goal to post more and to beat my number of posts from 2007, being 43. I did 51 in 2012, so yay for me! Pumpkinbutt was my biggest supporter and encouraged me greatly...so you can see why I always give him a huge birthday party because he is the best kid ever!


He and I made a new goal for 2013 to beat the 2005 number of posts being 66. So to keep up with this goal but keeping time restraints in mind, I have decided I will post a vintage image that I like, such as the birthday ones seen here, everyday until after his birthday (hmmmm... we'll see.). I will doubtfully make any comments on them...just eye candy.


I thought I would also put up a scan of some vintage candles I got at a thrift 10 years ago or so...for 15 cents.  We use one of them every year in our cakes.  We deem it the really lucky candle to be blown out first to insure maximum wish granting security.

Disney World Hollywood Studios 50's Cafe

We just got back from Disney!  We made reservations a couple of months ago to save us a seat at the 50's Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios.  The entire restaurant is made to look like a home from the mid century.  The "Lounge" area is the living (waiting)  room:






The front entry is a perfect replica of a 50's kitchen:



At my table, some of the vintage (not reproductions)  knick knacks (all are glued down to the shelves..I checked):



Here are a few additional images of the interior, for your viewing pleasure, that I found on the nets: 


Hey, look! It's our table (below)!

Here is a really nice, clean shot with no annoy people in the photo:
The waiters/waitresses introduce themselves as Aunt Linda or Cousin Lou.  They also treat you like family, as in if you are naughty and don't eat your veggies they will help you by feeding them to you.  We behaved ourselves but while we were there a few folks got put in the corner and had to help clear their table!

I saw somewhere that if you don't finish your veggies, they bring them back to you as the "dessert" with whipped cream on top....hopefully they don't force you to eat that!

Super fun and wonderful atmosphere!
